We ate at this buffet a couple of times over the years and thought it was good. When we returned in December, 2014 we found the price of the buffet had skied because beer and wine were now included (and we don't drink) The quality of the food had definitely deteriorated. The only thing I really liked was made to... More

In my Vegas visit, I developed a strategy for buffets. Most bang for your buck. Read my review for le village buffet at Paris for details. I began trying to stick to my strategy here and then decided it was not worth in. Food was either bland, salty, stale, or old. Of the 8 people in attendance, 5 got sick... More

Is a nice restaurant located on the Mandalay Hotel, the waiting line was not too big and they gave us a table relativetly quick for being a party of 7. I think price was about $26 plus $5 for bottomless champagne. Half of our table paid for the champagne however the waitress was kind enough fo fill everyone's glass with... More

the selection was moderate which wasn't a bad thing as lunch shouldn't be overwhelming. Good pastes, pork chops and cocktail shrimp

Very good buffet. Many selections for everyone. Service and food quality was good. Not like in the past for cost as Vegas is not cheap. But still a very good value for your money.

Buffet was "fine" but expensive ($23 when we ate about $5 worth of food due to poor/no selections). Definitely would not go back there again. Better buffets can be found on and around other hotels.

My daughter and I were going to Michael Jackson One a great show. The waitress was awful. She... More

For the price, this food is a GREAT VALUE. I could go on and on about the great choices they had. I had 3 plates of their crablegs alone.....DELICIOUS! Perfectly cooked. The dessert choices are more than I have ever seen at any buffet before. It's like they had a buffet bar of desserts alone lol. Unbelievably satisfied with the... More

Went here after the MJ One show. Surprisingly we were able to get right in. The food was good. I think you should definitely try the build your own pasta station. I think that was actually the best part. I could of ate just that. Another surprise was the champagne and wine open bar. Its a nice place. Crab legs,... More

Just ok. A lot of the food was bland. Much better buffets to go to. The pizza was good but that's not what you pay the big bucks for. Aria was my favorite.
